Police have launched an investigation after a child brought cookies suspected to be laced with drugs and shared them with students at an elementary school in northeastern B.C.

School officials confirm the incident happened at École Frank Ross in Dawson Creek, according to CBC News.

The kids who reportedly ate the cookies were eight and nine years old.

RCMP say the suspicious cookies were reported to them on Oct. 23.

Because of privacy concerns, superintendent Leslie Lamm said the school district can’t reveal much about the ongoing investigation. Approximately 460 students are enrolled at the school.

The Ministry for Children and Family Development are also involved in the investigation. In a statement, RCMP urged parents to contact police if they suspect the cookies had an effect on their children.

“Any parents who may have noticed anything strange or unusual with their child or even sought medical attention are encouraged to call police,” said Cpl. Dave Tyreman.

Parents can contact Dawson Creek RCMP at 250-784-7000.
